  1. Friends, I now have been informed there have been rumors about the A330 release on more channels. I have no idea where that comes from, probably some date in some document. But here is a promise. I will let you know when we got a feature ready dataset when that is handed to our internal test department when they hand that to our core testers (all real pilots) when they hand it to our external testers when the test department hands it to the installer/marketing team when I sign off on the project when you can buy it on our shop when you can buy it on our affiliated shops when you can buy it on the Marketplace Okay?

  3. And thats what will happen for sure like we had it in the past. While I understand the wishes of people for "their" livery, please stop posting a wishlist.

  4. Guys, the liveries are not that much important point to talk about once the aircraft is released people will begin publish repaints for all airlines do not worry about this. What we have to set our point is on what extent of details the a330 will be regarding to systems as electrical, fuel system, hydraulics. Those are much important than liveries.

  5. Guys, just post your wishes in the community->livery requests on flightsim.to right before release. As a painter myself I can attest to that you get waaaayyy further by doing that than making a post here. They haven't added the Aerosoft A330 category yet, so please do not post a request for the a330 in another category. Then I can almost guarantee that your livery gets made, with most A330 operators being pretty sizeable airlines that people know of and all. It might take a while for all of them to be made, but the completion rate on new high fidelity add-ons is great. So please just stop asking here, let them focus on the plane and post your wishes on flightsim.to close to release!

  6. But a cabin that reflects that would easily add a few months of modeling to the project, would increase memory load a LOT (thus reducing framerates) and would probably make use on Xbox impossible due to the increased memory.

  7. OK, I see 2 problems: - your username is only 1 character and this character is a special character. things like that are known to cause problems in many case - but more problematic is the fact that your Microsoft Visual C++ Libraries are totally outdated. This does not happen with a correct and updated Windows installation. You may try to go to this site and download and install the latest Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable Packages: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/cpp/windows/latest-supported-vc-redist?view=msvc-170 If this does not help, your Windows installation is definitely not as it should be.

  9. Hi, I'm Alicia and I would like to ask some questions and doubts I'm sorry if I sound silly, but I hardly know anything about this flight simulation world and I'm feeling very lost no matter how much I try to inform by myself 😅 My little brother Luca will be 10 years old the next month and we are going to gift him the Aerosoft CRJ 1000 for Microsoft Flightsimulator. We are from the Canary Islands, from a small village in Lanzarote, and in summer 2020 Luca was diagnosed with leukemia... Luckily we found a great specialist in Valencia and to go there from June to September we are going with Iberia Regional-Air Nostrum, which operates with CRJ 1000. Luca has always loved airplanes, but until he got sick he had never been on one, and once he did he ABSOLUTELY fell in love with the CRJ. Sometimes, especially in 2020 and 2021 when there were fewer travelers due to the pandemic, the crew used to take him to the cockpit jumpseat and he hallucinates đŸ„č So, he has been telling us for some time now that his dream is to be a CRJ pilot when he grows up and he ended up discovering the Aerosoft CRJ by searching information about the real aircraft. He is fascinated by it, says it looks and works just like the real one and that he will be able to learn to be a CRJ pilot in the future with it. Last Christmas we gave him a powerful laptop so he could do his homework and play Microsoft Flightsimulator and the rest of his favorite games the weeks he had to travel to Valencia for his treatment, and now for his next birthday we want to give him his precious CRJ 1000 simulator đŸ„ł So, these are my questions: Luca has been farming every day since a couple of months ago some Microsoft Rewards points with which he is close to redeem a Microsoft gift card worth 10€. If we buy the CRJ from the MSFS marketplace, could he use those 10€ of balance for it? He is aware that the trips we make for him are expensive for us and wants to help and save us some money. In order to buy the CRJ 1000, do we have to buy the other CRJ versions first? Does purchasing the aircraft include any liveries? If so, which ones? Luca of course loves the Iberia Regional-Air Nostrum ones and apart from that also the SAS and Lufthansa ones because we have some family links with Germany. If this aren’t included, could you recommend any place where I can buy these liveries? My brother currently plays Microsoft Flightsimulator simultaneously with his xbox controller, mouse and keyboard. Can he continue to do so with the Aerosoft CRJ? Does purchasing the aircraft include any realistic documentation? Luca is most interested in studying and replicating everything as realistically as possible. Also, I would like to know if you know any youtuber that has made good realistic Aerosoft CRJ tutorials or realistic flights in English (even if my brother English is not perfect at his age, I would translate everything for him without problem). Also, from what I've seen, there are still few aircraft in Microsoft Flightsimulator with the level of Aerosoft's CRJ, so I wanted to thank you for doing such a fantastic job with my little brother's favorite aircraft. It’s so good for him feeding such an amazing passion for the aviation I also want to share with you this drawing that Luca made a few months ago and that he has hanging on the door of his room since April when he started studying the aircraft and some pictures that I have taken this summer in the CRJs ❀ *Excuse him for the "Airsoft" thing 😂 Thank you in advance for your time and help 😊

  10. There is a thread on this forum entitled "Manual flight and pitch inertia" - it was started on March 17, 2021 and the last post is dated July 13, 2022 and no CLEAR response has been given. This problem still exists - just watch some you tube videos and see how wonky the pitch is on take off. The speeds go way above V2+10 before the plane becomes stable in the initial climb out. I submitted a ticket (#4149) regarding this matter. Below is the response I received. "We do not have any such reports at the moment. Is your trim correctly set and your hardware/joystick properly configured? The in-sim w&b menu will not match the actual w&b figures. The only reference is your efb, as pointed out in the manuals. Mit freundlichen GrĂŒĂŸen / With friendly greetings, Florian Venus Aerosoft Customer Support" Yet the above mentioned post is one such report - at the moment. This problem needs immediate attention from at least Alex. The response I would appreciate is: 1. Acknowledgement of the problem from Aerosoft 2. Their word that they will resolve it (which was already promised by Alex in the mentioned post but has since been silent) 3. When we can expect a fix - keep us updated and not to let this post go "cold" 4. No flippant and sarcastic responses Regards Trevor

  11. Friends, if you find issues in a Microsoft beta I suggest discussing that with Microsoft. We appreciate being informed, but if things worked and do not work in a beta it is the people who released the beta that should know, that's why they released a beta. For publisher/developers like Aerosoft and developers like Oliver it is simply not easy to start adapting code until you are 101% sure that will be the released version.

  12. In nearly 40 years of software developments I never could change programcode in a way, that existing data (scenies are only data for the MSFS) could not used anymore. The users will kill me for that. Therefor any good sytem has a version number in the data (like MSFS scenery packets has), so when changes are needed for new functions, you should be able the handle the older packets, ok without the new features, but as they works when they was released. To brake the function with an update of the sim is a bug not a feature. Nobody (not MS, not the user) pay us to change the scenery with any SU update. But we will see what is finaly released with the SU, then we can see if something must be modified in the scenery. I never make changes based on a Beta of the sim.

  16. I'd rather Aerosoft concentrated on the aircraft itself, add a few paints for people to get started with and let some hugely talented third parties come up with all the addition/fictional liveries anyone could ask for and post them here/flightsim.to etc...

  21. Simple answer: No fictious liveries from Aerosoft. This can be done by others. Aerosoft only modells the A330-300 and TAP only operates the A330-200 and -900NEO

  23. While I'm not denying there's problems with the CRJ - some of which I've reported in some depth, which has hopefully been a little useful - I'd be very careful putting any of the above on a pedestal. I own products from probably half of those & I can name issues with *all* of them - JF for one have said they're not going to bother updating aerodynamics while the sim is in flux, so you have aircraft from SU5 still. I'm not going to start on PMDG, or problems with WT's autopilot or some of the other's autopilots too - honestly the CRJ is somewhere in the middle, not at the bottom as you seem to imply - or this issue, or that issue. Stop with the hyperbole, it doesn't help anyone & people will use it to get threads locked. You obviously a) don't know much about software development, and b) haven't looked at the comically bad documentation Asobo are providing with the current SDK if you think devs should somehow get ahead of the sim. Given the current state of it I'm glad we actually have half decent aircraft at all.

  25. NĂ€chstes Ziel der Etappe war der Airport Victoria Falls (FVFA). Dieser sollte Startpunkt fĂŒr meine AusflĂŒge zu den Viktioria Falls und zum Okavango Delta sein. Zu dem Airport gibt es nicht viel zu sagen. Ich verwendete den Standardairport von Xplane. Ist OK, aber nicht wirklich etwas Herausragendes. FĂŒr den Ausflug zu den ViktoriafĂ€llen nahm ich wieder die Cessna 210. Eigentlich braucht man keine Worte verlieren wenn man das Bild betrachtet. Eines der bedeutendsten Naturwunder der Erde wurde vergessen? Nein, nicht vergessen. Aber einfach nur schrecklich umgesetzt (womit ich untertreibe). Keine WasserfĂ€lle, dafĂŒr aber eine Victoria Falls Bridge die abgestĂŒrzt zu sein scheint. Das ist Standardscenery ohne Mesh und ohne irgendein Addon. Wirklich schade. Auch der Weiterflug ĂŒber den Sambesi Nationalpark war nicht beeindruckender. Nach der EnttĂ€uschung ĂŒber die ViktoriafĂ€lle und den Sambesi Nationalpark, stieg ich auf dem Victoria Falls Airport wieder um auch die C208. Mit ihr ging es weiter zum Highlight meiner Tour, dem Okavango Delta. Dabei ĂŒberflog ich den Chobe Nationalpark. Im Gegensatz zur RealitĂ€t, ist der Chobe Nationalpark im Simulator erneut nichts Besonderes. Dennoch finde ich, dass die Texturen in Xplane ganz gut getroffen sind. Ich war noch nie in dieser Region, kann mir aber vorstellen, dass die Tönung der Texturen die realen Savannen ganz gut trifft. Erste Zielpiste und Ausgangspunkt fĂŒr meine Touren im Okavango Delta ist Chiefs Camp Airfield. Nach der Landung auf der Piste, treffe ich beim Abstellen meiner Maschine auch das erste Mal auf eine Elefantenherde. Es gibt also doch Leben im Sim (gut, von den Nashörnern im Ngorongoro Krater mal abgesehen). Die Piste von Chiefs Camp Airfield liegt auf Chiefs Island. Obwohl von FrĂŒhjahr bis Herbst große Teile des Okavango Deltas trocken und dann, wenn bei uns Winter ist, wieder ĂŒberspĂŒlt sind, gehören die Islands zu den permanent trockenen Gebieten. Das nur zur ErklĂ€rung falls jemand keine "echte" Insel dort vorfindet. Bei Chiefs Camp Airfield steige ich wieder um auf meine Cessna 210. Sie ist fĂŒr die kommenden AusflĂŒge ĂŒber das Okavango Delta wirklich besser geeignet. Viele Worte möchte ich zu den kommenden Bildern eigentlich nicht verlieren, da sie fĂŒr sich sprechen. Und noch ein Überflug ĂŒber Abus Camp (wer findet die Giraffen?) Ich habe einige FlĂŒge ĂŒber das Okavango Delta getĂ€tigt und war von allen wirklich begeistert. Ja, es ist eine Addon Scenery. Aber sie ist Freeware und von wirklich sehr guter QualitĂ€t. Zum Abschluss noch einmal ein weitlĂ€ufigeres Bild ĂŒber das Delta. Auf diesem sieht man, wie gut die Scenery gemacht ist. Das einzige was mich hĂ€tte stören können, sind die Tiger die scheinbar Zebras jagen. Laut Beschreibung gibt es die wohl in der Scenery. Diese habe ich glĂŒcklicherweise nicht gesehen. Tiger in Afrika geht mal gar nicht. Zumindest nicht außerhalb eines Zoos. Und eben ohne gesehene Tiger, ist die Okavango Scenery wirklich einen Ausflug wert. Die Heimreise meiner Afrika Tour ging von Victoria Falls ĂŒber Luanda (FNLU - Standardscenery) nach Tripoli und dann zurĂŒck nach Stuttgart. Mir hat diese Tour unheimlich Spaß gemacht. Vor allem die AusflĂŒge zum Ngorongoro Krater und zum Okavango Delta. Sowohl die Addon Scenerien als auch die umliegende Standardscenery ist wirklich toll gemacht. Es geht aus meinem Bericht nicht hervor, aber ich habe viel Zeit dort verbracht und etliche FlĂŒge in diesen Nationalparks zurĂŒckgelegt. Mir wurde nie langweilig. An die ViktoriafĂ€lle muss Xplane aber noch einmal Hand anlegen. Das, was Xplane hier bietet, ist ein NoGo. Noch ein letzter Tipp fĂŒr alle die auch mal in die Nationalparks wollen. Deaktiviert X-Africa. Das ist ein tolles Tool, platziert aber leider auch HĂ€user im Ngorongoro Krater (wo sie nicht hin gehören) und seltsame, moderne MehrfamilienhĂ€user in der Serengeti und anderen Nationalparks sowie in die Seen. Das sieht nicht so toll aus. Ein Wort noch zu den Flugzeugen. Über die Inibuilds A300 mag ich nicht viel sagen. Sie ist gerade mein absoluter Favorit, was sich aber schmerzlich mit Xplane 12 Ă€ndern wird. Die Kritiken an den Carenado Flugzeugen, hauptsĂ€chlich an der C208, kann ich nicht nachvollziehen. Ich finde beide Flugzeuge sehr gut umgesetzt. Speziell die C208 und C210 sind fĂŒr BuschflĂŒge meine erste Wahl. Ich besitze auch die Thranda Kodiak. Trotzdem greife ich lieber zur C208. Ist natĂŒrlich auch Geschmackssache. Beide Flugzeuge C208 und C210, wĂŒrde ich jederzeit wieder kaufen. Und jetzt beginnt mein Planung fĂŒr Asien. Viele GrĂŒĂŸe Matthias

  27. The Left and Right Boost Pumps are actually switchlights. The CRJ has a dark cockpit philosophy so when everything is configured for cruise (read: working normally) all lights are out and EICAS messages are blank. The Boost Pump switchlights will illuminate amber "INOP" when deselected or when failed. When selected, the "light" part of the switchlight will remain extinguished until one of many things triggers them to run. Long story short: select the Boost Pump switchlights IN and don't worry about whether they're illuminated, the aircraft will take care of running them for you.

  29. Hello Alicia. At first let me tell you my best wishes for your brother for his fight against leukemia. To your questions i recommend to go to Aerosoft shop and read the description of the CRJ, there will some things get cleared about the liveries i.e. When you want to buy the CRJ 1000, you have to take the complete bundle with 550/700/900 and 1000. The 550/700 are sold seperatly, but 900/1000 only as an extension... If you want more liveries, take a look in the following link: https://forum.aerosoft.com/index.php?/forum/1089-new-uploaded-liveries/ If i see right, these are all for free. I guess it should be possible to stear the CRJ with Controller, Mouse and Keyboard. About purchase via Sim Marketplace i can not say much, as i do not use it. I hope to help further a bit.

  33. I know. One of the many problems in MSFS. And as this "online traffic" is IMHO quite useless anyway, I only use "AI Offline" and get the airports nicely populated. But then you have to turn off the ground aircraft density. Not I'm aware of. Try to ask this in the official MSFS forum. And of course "deleting" the default models in MSFS is not an option. This sim doesnt choose anything. Only St (or another traffic tool) chooses the liveries.

  34. There is usually never a copilot in cockpit view. The tip in post #1 doesn't bring it either. It can be added by modifying the plane's files. The general method is described here: https://forums.flightsimulator.com/t/tip-add-a-copilot-to-your-aircraft-and-passengers-too/351556/18 However, I wouldn't recommend to do so if you don't know what you are doing.

  37. How to calibrate the Thrustmaster TCA devices with the Windows joystick utility. Thrustmaster offers a calibration utility that substitutes to the standard Windows joystick calibration program. However, in some cases you will need to perform a standard manual calibration in the Windows standard calibration program. But due to the Virtual Buttons on some axes, this will prematurely trigger the calibration utility to switch to the next axis. Indeed, when one axis is calibrated, the user has either to click “Next”, or press a button on the device to switch to the next axis to calibrate. To overcome this, a simple trick is to press a button BEFORE starting the calibration process and hold this button pressed during the whole process. See hereunder a short video illustrating the process :

  41. And to be more precise Aerosoft only models the A330-343 version, the one with the RR Trent engines. Thats another reason why you will not see certain liveries of other airlines, as they have the A330-300 but with other engine configurations.

  42. Eine Hilfe zum Optimieren kann das log.txt sein, dazu mit Notepad++ alle Zeilen, die "I/SCN: DSF load time:" enthalten, suchen, das Ergebnis in einen neuen Reiter packen, den linken Teil bis zur Zahl löschen und dann als Ganzzahl absteigend sortieren, dann erhĂ€lt man eine Übersicht welche Teile am lĂ€ngsten zum Laden brauchen. So kann man "ÜbeltĂ€ter" identifizieren und evtl. auf eine schnellere Disk verschieben oder sich ĂŒberlegen ob man das ĂŒberhaupt braucht und es löschen kann. Ich hab hier 2 Beispiele: Start in EDDN mit X-Europe, Orthos und Captain7/29Palms EDDN Nuremberg: Ladezeiten EDDN.txt Start in Pittsburgh USA mit Standard-Szenerie und X-America: Ladezeiten Pittsburgh.txt

  43. While working on the databases we realized we missed one category of vessels in the North Sea, dredgers. Our database has 22 of those vessels in operation so we needed to add them. As explained before, more then half the vessels on the North Sea are not 'moving' but 'working'. If you want to understand the depth of how we use the models... Yesterday we had to decided how often and where to place this ship: Those are the lower sections of wind turbines for the deeper parts of the sea. But looking at the data we have we realized this ship could only be going from a port to a construction site. And on the North Sea that means going east or west. Not the more standard shipping lane headings of north/south, or north-east/south-west. If you ever seen a database driven project...

  45. Well, go through and read posts here. I no longer assume anything. One could assume just about anything, for example, running through the tutorial line by line can take some time and discharge the batteries. Something is amiss because I have never had to touch the generator switches and I start cold and dark every time.
